Long time coming...

So its been quite a while since my last post and glad to say some new things have definitely come my way.

1. I'm officially closer to 30 than I'll ever be! Yes 29 yrs old! I would think that I would be flipping out over being 29 and not have all the fairytale wishes a girl plans in her teenage years---but I'm good. Yes I say that with confidence, I'm good! Like wine, I get better with age! I guess that is my new tag line!!! I realize that what I didn't have at 21 or 25 I now have at 29. I'm learning to understand and appreciate my value and worth as a beautiful black woman. I have chosen to be confident and patient. Too character traits that normally clash with each other in the modern world. But the two combined are a force to be dealt with!

2. I'm done riding the wave. Yes this is a good thing! Some of you may ask what the wave is, but that's for me to label and for you to appreciate metaphorically! I mentioned the wave in earlier post though. It was cool while it lasted. I'm grown enough to know when enough is enough and that two opposite directions can't move in the same way......

3. I'm progressing well through the grieving process. My brother, Taurus, was shot and killed in 2006 and I thought the world stood still, but to my dismay it didn't. I forced myself into work, and graduate school but now I am learning to deal with the grief instead of submerging it. I am facing it head on and that's a good thing.

So its the last day of 2008 and in review I can truly say I enjoyed 08. Like everyone there are some things I wish were different, but I can handle the fact that they are the way they are and that's cool. I don't have to be this superwoman in order to deal with life and love the position that I am in. I plan to take 09 month by month.

Remember it only takes one to start a revolution......

  1. Sorry to hear about your brother.

    I've been tryingt to get over in a sence the same thing that happened to one of my cousins in 2007.

    My generation of cousins were all close like bothers and sisters (all31 of us) and when something like that happened, and him being the first of our generation, it was tough.

    So yeah, the world doesn't stop, but every now and then it is nice to remember them at some of their finest moments so that their memory lives on.
